Is there an optional aluminum front hub carrier to replace the stock plastic unit (SCHU42560)?

Default Wild Thing Updates

Could someone explain what the Wild Thing hop ups do as far as handling? I obviously understand the shock mounts.

He went from 7 to 3rd in a 1/2 lap and went back and forth from 3 rd to 1 st for about 3 laps until he got the feel for the car then he just paced himself for a win He said car was free but still said car had a lot of roll
He has only been racing T/C for about a year he races an 09 xray in VTA and was using a 011 xray for club racing in T/c He said that the mid motor just drive a little different then the X-rays so with a little more wheel time and with the new HP he hopes to be in the A main soon . His 1st place B main was about 7 th place in the A so not to far off

The rear mouldings move the lower shock position outboard about .5mm; making the rear of the car rotate abit better in some conditions. The rear brace will also free the back of the car but does so by reducing the flex across the middle-rear of the car.. BTW sending stuff tomorrow ...

We have them in limited supply.. They're not on the site directly as they're a bit tough to get a hold of, however we can send you a paypal invoice for them if you decide..

The first is the rear chassis brace that was all the buzz several weeks back.. It reduces the flex from the middle rear portion of the chassis allowing the rear of the car to rotate better in some conditions

Next are the rear mouldings that move the lower shock mount position outboard about .5mm offering a similar effect and contributes to a bit more corner speed in some conditions, typically higher traction.

Finally are the shock mounts themselves that are simply easier to use as they don't require the plastic spacer as do the stock units.. eliminates binding at the top of the shock. These are usually completed with CSK washers reversed and mounted on the ends to hold the shock in place..

Hope it helps!

Umm, don't they move the lower shock mount out about 0.5mm, at least thats what Hoffer mentioned before..

Moving the mount in would make the rear more locked down, not less.

Ed

has anyone found that the bearing in the micro caster blocks can have play which gives alot of slop. i have tried the m4x14 screw mod but still lots of play. if i look closely though i can see the inner bearing race moves a bit and also the out race moves in the micro caster bit.

the right hand side has alot more slop than the left.

going to look into better 4x9x4 bearings to try and prevent the slop
